It examines…

STEAL THIS FILM 2 >> A film about the efforts of capitalism to destroy freedom in internet

“These are strange times indeed. While they continue to command so much attention in the mainstream media, the ‘battles’ between old and new modes of distribution, between the pirate and the institution of copyright, seem to many of us already lost and won. We know who the victors are. Why then say any more?Because waves of repression continue to come: lawsuits are still levied against innocent people; arrests are still…
